ACE’s social responsibility project Art of Trade continues with its second instalment: “Symphony of Silk & Metal”, a music and visual show about the historical Silk Road and its modern reinvigoration.
The show will be performed by musicians and dancers coming together from various countries including China, Kazakhstan, Iran and Turkey which lies on the historical Silk Road.
The show combines the traditional musical elements with modern sound textures thus symbolizing the harmony between the old and new, the east and the west, nature and the technology. The dancers also will be performing traditional dance figures interpreted with a modern choreography.
Melodic metal drums created especially for the project will be performing alongside the traditional instruments of the Silk Road region.
The show will be visiting the major cities of Asia, Europe and other regions to celebrate the rebirth of the Silk Road through modern railroad and maritime projects like China’s “One Belt, One Road” and to revive the spirit of peace, understanding and cooperation once brought by the trade to the region for thousands of years.
ACE will be cooperating again with UNICEF Turkish National Committee to raise money and awareness of the issues along and around the Silk Road.
